Welcome to Term 5 & 6

Jack and the Beanstalk

This term our theme is 'Growing'.   We are using the book 'Jack and the Beanstalk' as our driver text.  This term we will be finding out what plants need to grow successfully, watching how a plant grows and then later we will use another text about a giant . . . 'The smartest giant in town; by Julia Donaldson to learn about how people grow and develop over time.
